Sure. I'll pick http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_ASCII which states;
"The term extended ASCII (or high ASCII) describes eight-bit or larger
character encodings that include the
standard seven-bit ASCII characters as well as others. The use of the term is
sometimes criticized, because it
can be mistakenly interpreted that the ASCII standard has been updated to
include more than 128 characters or
that the term unambiguously identifies a single encoding, both of which are
According to another hit from the hit list generated - a commericial site which
I doubt it's credibilty - CP1252 is what they consider to be "extended ASCII".
Others seem to believe ISO-8859-1 is the winner which is the usual accepted
so-called LATIN1 encoding as opposed to Microsoft's version of it.
For the record you should stick with "LATIN1" since there is no such thing as
"UTF-8 2". Your 'ö' character in your message is showing up as the ISO-8859-1
encoding 0xf6 but I suppose it could just as easily be CP1252.
Nice try though and best of luck with it.
Life is good,
